P.F. Sloan — The Sins Of A Family lyrics

She had a bad childhood
While She was very young
So don't judge her too badly
She had a schizophrenic mother
Who worked in the gutter
Would have sold herself
To the devil gladly
What a sad environment
A bugridden tenement
And when they couldn't pay the rent
It was 'cause her father was out
Getting sicker
Oh, the stone's been cast
And blood's thicker than water
And the sins of the family fall on the daughter
All the sins of the family fall on the daughter

At the age of 16 she had been around more
Than any girl about 30
And the high I. Q. 's who condemned her
Knew she was a product of poor heredity
It's a ficticious fact when you fall on your back
You can backtrack failure with inspection without exception
All the sins of the family fall on the daughter
All the sins of the family fall on the daughter

Oh the devil is open to all of us
Heaven selects just a precious few
It takes an inside pull to get gabriel make an angel out of you
One can't live A lie then expect to die
With a soul in paradise
You know you gotta pay the price
Like you oughtta
Blood's thicker than water
And the sins of the family fall on the daughter
All the sins of the family fall on the daughter
